-fire, these talks taking place in cairo have told nbc news they are serious, that they are making progress and that this is how the negotiations stand right at this moment. the israelis want a two-part deal, a two-stage deal. the first part would be an immediate hostility, immediate cessation of violence, both sides stop attacking each other. that would be unconditional. then israel would want to move to a second stage where the two sides, israel and the palestinians, would engage in this discussions, negotiations overs the next two weeks to one month talking about potentially ending the siege on gaza, making it easier for palestinians -- >> and clearly we're having difficulty with richard's reporting. surmounts any difficult of technology. richard is reporting on negotiations in cairo -- amman, you're in gaza as well. negotiations would be a immediate cessation of hostilities and a two-stage process within two weeks to a month there would be a broader agreement. we've known from the start that israel wants to do something about changing the reality where these rocket attacks do not contin

. an israeli official reportedly just landed in cairo, where egypt is trying to broke are a cease-fire. as israel signals it is open to negotiation, it is also preparing for the possibility of a ground war. we have team coverage. we have a reporter on the ground and a reporter traveling with president obottom akeeping a close eye on the middle-east. leyland? >> reporter: shannon, this is a country on the brink of war, just over my right shoulder is the gas station, where many citizens soldier some of the 30,000 reservivist, called up, stopping for everything from oreos to water to do rito's to pick up before they man their tank, maneuvering in the black of this, right behind me, before possibly heading into gazzasm more than a dozen palestinian killed in airstrikes inside the gaza strip. many of them are civilian, some children. here, we have had at least a dozen injured. this is quite literally the tip of the israeli spear. these are citizen shoaleddiers, a lot of them engineers or accountants, drafted into service here. they are getting their tanks ready, all along the gaza bord
in cairo and they agreed on a cease-fire, and the israeli government surprised us. and then -- i hope this will be an eye-opener for mr. netanyahu. i hope that he will get one lesson. the lesson is that security will only be achieved through peace, through the two-step solution. security will not be achieved through bombing and wars and war-mongering. we need to reach this conclusion and we need now to support everything offered by the egyptians in order to get a comprehensive cease-fire. that's what we're working on. he's fully engaged with all palestinian actions, including hamas, and is fully on board to achieve a blanket comprehensive cease-fire because that's what will help all concerned, palestinians, israelis, and americans. >> i know one of the issues the israelis are demanding in the israeli cabinet, i'm told is meeting right now, even as we speak, the so-called international security cabinet, the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, one of the things they want to make sure is that even if there's a cease-fire, the shelling into israel, some of these rockets and missiles don't
to his world view, whether it's in the middle east, the cairo speech, about china, russia, things like that. this was another one, i think, in that line of speeches, people really want ed to understand th obama doctrine if they read all of these speeches together almost in a little book form they would get a better understanding of the president's world view. i would assume a lot of people already believe they have that understanding. he's off to cambodia and then it's back home because he has to pardon that turkey. i'll see you soon. >> thanks, chuck. even across the world in asia, the president can't escape washington. at a buddhist monastery he joked that geshgs 0s on the fiscal cliff may require a little help in the almighty. >> yes, we're working on this budget. we're going to need a lot of prayer. >> also on the president's plate a developing fight over who removed language and talking points given to susan rights that suggested al qaeda may have been behind the terrorist attack in libya? >> it went to the so-called deputy's committee that's populated by appointees from the admin
with benjamin netanyahu and then to ramallah to meet with palestinian leaders and finally to cairo, egypt. the president was up late last night talking to netanyahu and mohamed morrissey. this morning chuck asked ben rhodes whether clinton is going because talks are stuck or a diplomatic resolution is close at hand. >> she is going because we've been in discussions with these leaders and we want to carry those forward. and obviously the center of gravity for those discussions is in the region. i don't want to predict what the outcome of those discussions will be. we know how difficult the situation is, how charged the issue of gaza is. we've seen conflict there in the past. so this is a difficult challenge. but, again, it's worth the effort of leaders from the united states in the region and interfashionly. >> chuck joins us now from cambodia where he is traveling with the president. chuck, a lot of moving and fast moving parts here. what can you tell us? what's the latest? >> i can tell you what aides will say in answer it to that question off answer. certain things you can say on camera
in the west bank, meaning with the palestinian authority, then in cairo could nudge along the process to see if they could get to a point of some sort of negotiated cease-fire. as far as the united states is concerned, what spokesperson said, that begins with hamas stopping the rocket fire into israel and then a longer negotiated settlement, they hope, can be agreed upon. >> chuck todd live in cambodia. thanks so much. as chuck was just talking about, secretary of state hillary clinton is going to be heading directly from cambodia to israel to try to help work out a diplomatic solution to the violent escalation of tensions in gaza. nbc's chapman bell is live with us for the situation there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. as calls for a cease-fire grow, the violence does continue. overnight the israeli defense force attacked 100 targets inside the gaza strip they say are necessary to stop this flow of rockets, underground rocket launchers and weapons depots as well as financial institutions to hamas. now, this morning, though, militants within the gaza strip responded with volleys o
this thing will last. gregg: did secretary clinton's shuttle diplomacy from jerusalem to cairo prove pen official here? >> -- beneficial here in. >> yes, certainly. the administration deserves credit, to be sure, but it's not a major victory in the sense that we have a middle east peace which has been as elusive to this administration as it has been to the previous ones. but at the end of her reign as secretary of state, her tenure is coming to conclusion with mounting criticism over benghazi and the lack of security, this certainly is a plus. gregg: are you surprised at how helpful the new islamist government of muhammad morsi really was in this process as a mediator standing up for the truce, probably pressuring hamas and, of course, their benefactor? are you surprised at what they did? yeah. i think it's a pleasant surprise. i mean, this is not the government we would have wanted in egypt post-mubarak because they are muslim brotherhood, and there's parts of the muslim brotherhood that is totally alien to us, the salafist movement which are radical islamists, but here he is openly spo

the mobilization of 75,000 army reservists. joining us now is nbc live from gaza. as peace talks continue in cairo, israel is demanding that hamas stop firing rockets across the border. is there a willingness to do this or has the number of civilian casualties made a cease-fire now much less likely? >> well, you know, the fact that the negotiations are ongoing is an indication that palestinian factions can abide by the truce. in fact, in the past it's been on multiple occasions documented that palestinian factions have been committed to the truce until there's been some kind of violation, if you will, from the israeli side that israel justifies as an act in its own security. nonetheless, palestinian factions say they have abided by it in the past, they would abide by it again in the future if there is one in place. the question is can they get to that agreement in the next couple hours before time runs out. and the question really surrounding the truce have to deal with the cessation of hostilities. israel wants an immediate cessation of hostilities. then enter into negotiations about lifting a fi
in cairo, that's where the cease-fire discussions are taking place. and he said that hamas is not calling for any ground war or escalation, but despite the fact that hamas over the last year has fired more than 700 rockets into israel, he said israel is the aggressor in this conflict. listen to what he said. >> we will not accept any -- they are the ones who attack. a cease-fire will cure when our demands are met. >> just what are those demands? two key points that the hamas wants to make. they want an end to what they described as targeted assassinations and also want an end to the israeli blockade of gaza. shepard, in another late-breaking development, we are just getting word now that the israeli military striking in gaza a short time ago hit a bank with ties to hamas. so, the blood shed does continue. shepard? >> shepard: david lee, any indication that the diplomatic effort is making any difference? >> not very much on the ground. not far from where i'm standing, in fact, there are troops and tanks who are poised to move into gaza. how much of this is leverage at the negotiating table
that are the cease fire talks going on inside cairo and obviously secretary of state hillary clinton's visit here over the next 24 to 36 hours may delay a ground invasion. the question is, is it enough to actually get a cease fire deal on the table and signed between hamas jihad, and israel here on the other side. guys? >> steve: a lot of moving parts. what do you know about apparently earlier today an employee at the u.s. embassy in tel aviv was apparently stabbed by somebody. what's up with that? >> exactly. what it appears to be is that a local jewish man here, an israeli was upset h a personal beef with someone who was a local employee of the embassy and as though you would go to any workplace and try to take out your anger there at the person who happened to be working there, that's what happened. it seems unrelated to anything having to do with the united states. the embassy a coincidence that the man was so angry with was a guard there. thankfully fort guard, there were other people who subdued the attacker. but totally unrelated to things going on here or for that matter, the u.s. embassy
, no the a premeditated response to of what had transpired in cairo. >> so how did that happen? how was that accurate at the time? if we know that this was in fact a premeditated, not spontaneous occurrence? >> well, we don't know the degree it was premeditated. that's still something that's under investigation. how much advance planning was there or was this planned within 24 hours or the same day. so that's a question we still have to the get to the bottom of, but the important point in terms of the ambassador's statement on that sunday talk program is she was using the intelligence community's best estimate. at that time when she appeared on the sunday talk shows, the intelligence community still believed that that began as a protest, that, yes, there were terrorists and extremists involved, but that it began as a protest. so i don't see how we can fall the ambassador for using what the intelligence community said was their best assessment. in fact, in my view if she had deviated from that, if she had departed from what the intelligence community said they thought took place, then she would have b

was certainly in sky r cairo and tunisia and other places. is this partly a victim of what's happened for the arab spring, the impetus for change has moved on? >> i don't think it necessarily has to do with the arab spring really. to be honest with you, what's been lacking is courage of leadership. we've seen in the international level, international diplomatic level, large agreements on what needs to be done to move this situation forward except for the united states which has played unfortunately a very obstructive role in international forums, objecting to, you know, preventing israeli settlement expansion when it comes to moving, you know, the negotiations forward and so on. so, you know, we need to could some soul searching here in washington to -- about what role we can play. the first and most important thing i think we can do is tell both sides, particularly now the israelis who we have connections with, that this needs to stop immediately. >> but finally how can you get the hamas to guarantee that the rockets will stop firing towards jerusalem and tel aviv? >> if you look at
of hamas have been in cairo. they've been meeting with officials. they've told them their conditions for a cease fire. here in gaza, the indication is a cease fire may still be off in the horizon. >> we were hearing, at least from israeli television stations here, that 90% of the conditions for the cease fire were there. that's what hamas was saying, at least, visa is-- vis-a-vis thes israeli networks. what are they saying? >> reporter: the way they've been framing the cease fire talks more about what the two sides want. both sides don't want war, at least they claim so. they both want to come out victorious from these two things. in terms of what hamas has been asking for, they've been asking for a guarantee from israel to not resume assassinations in the killing of its senior leaders, as we saw on wednesday. they're also calling on all the sides, including israel and egypt, to lift the blockade and siege on gaza that's crippled life here. for israel, they want to see a guarantee, not only in the short term that palestinian factions will stop firing rockets, but they want a long-ter
always say why was our embassy in cairo attacked earlier that day. it was specifically where our embassy was stormed and the u.s. flag was torn down and an islamist flag was put in its place, and that's because an us -- islamic radio show host talked about the movie and caused these riots all over the middle east. it's the hypocrisy stupid. on september 11th, 2001 we were attacked by terrorists, and we told united we stand, rally behind our commander in chief during wartime. in 2012, an attack happens overseas, four americans are killed and we are told the president is to blame, and it is being exploited again. in 2012 a ter rick attack is exploited for cheap political points. if any democrat had tried to smear bush over 9/11, which we were warned about, but they would have lost their job forever, and yet nowadays it's open season. we want to know your thoughts at 866-55-press. pat is joining us from kansas missouri. good morning, >> caller: good morning, john how are you today? >> john: i'm better now. >> caller: my statement is in reward to the gop, whic
who was definitely pretty tough in his remarks in a news conference out of cairo. he says israel has to make the first move. he was angry with benjamin netanyahu regarding the killing of one of hamas's top military commanders. i want you to listen to what he said this morning. >> translator: today netanyahu wanted to achieve three goals with several messages, but he did not succeed. yes, no doubt he succeeded in assassinating the heroic leader, but he wanted to maintain his ability in deterence, but it failed. >> you have been covering this region for a long time. when you hear him and you hear the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying that there is -- they're not going wait around forever here, is this political bluster? is this rhetted rhetoric? is there something more behind this? are we going to see an escalation? >> i think at the moment it does feel like political bluster on all sides. i mean, imagine this as well. when he was speaking there in cairo, at the same time it was just after a building used by palestinian media inside gaza had been struck by israeli missil
a functioning, working relationship. and now hillary clinton's most important stop on this trip will be in cairo for talk with his president morsi. >> this is will cain. dynamic between hamas and iran, we had an official on that said these missiles have three words on them "made in iran." we also have heard that hamas and iran have had a tense relationship since hamas supported the uprising in syria. what's that relationship and what's iran's role right now? >> absolutely. there are sectarian issues here. iran is predominantly shiite and hamas is predominantly sunni. the leader of hamas moved headquarters out of damascus and sided with the opposition. there is that real tension. in many ways, gaza reflects the kind of rivalry playing out in syria and elsewhere in the region. hamas relies on iran for military training and its most important weaponry, but there is this tension over syria. it's in syria's interest right now to see all the world's attention focused on gaza rather than on damascus to take some of the pressure off. these relationships in the region are shifting. part of what we're see
directly with terrorist organizations. then it's off to cairo and a meet with president morsi because it is the egyptian president that is the liaison if you will in these talks with hamas. the goal here is to create space, buy time to try to see if they can prevent israel from doing a full-fledged ground invasion. seeing if they can get some sort of temporary cease-fire to create room for a more negotiated settlement. shuttle diplomacy is back. >> what about the risk/reward. if she accomplishes something, then that's a great feather in her cap and the administration's. but if she doesn't, does she come off as being ineffective? >> well, there is a risk to this. i talked to the white house aides. i said, look, are you sendinger in because you think there's something precooked that they have a possibility of basically pushing this over the finish line, getting it done and they admitted they're not there. they do feel as if it is needed to sort of nudge things along. you are right, politically, this could be a great way for secretary clinton to finish her four-year tenure at the state d
envoy, a special envoy who went to cairo to meet with egyptian officials. the egyptian government, president mohamed morsi has been very much involved in trying to achieve a cease-fire together with representatives from turkey, from qatar. president and the secretary of state, the u.s. president, they've been talking to all sorts of leaders. let's see what happens. i'm only a few miles north of the gaza border right now. it's eerie here. the cafes are pretty much deserted. i was walking along the mediterranean beach. normally there would be a lot of people, it's a beautiful day here. pretty much deserted. i just got to an israeli area where there's a shelter for school kids. you hear the sirens going off. as soon as i got here a few hours ago the sirens went off. the soldiers rushed everyone into these bomb shelters, into these areas. you could see why people are terrified about what's going on. apparently in this particular inciden incident, when i heard the thuds, when i heard the sirens going off, the iron dome, this anti-missile system, seemed to have worked. we saw huge plume
nations secretary-general moon, in cairo, and egyptian president, he is spearheading these talks between hamas and israel. the israeli cabinet overnight had a four-hour meeting to discuss the egyptian proposal for a cease-fire. so they've decided for now to continue with the diplomatic efforts and hold off the ground operation. now, in terms of some of the demands of both israel and hamas, just to give you an idea what they want, israel wants hamas to stop firing rockets. so they don't want any hostile fire of any kind heading towards israeli city. on the other hand, hamas wants israel to stop target assassinations, and they want the siege lifted from gaza in place for years. >> obviously, lots of talk about the fighting and death toll continues to rise. another bloody night on both end, right, lama. >> reporter: absolutely. they're entering the seventh day, in the conflict, bombings have not stopped. the israeli air force, pounding strategic targets in gaza yesterday. the target was a hamas operative who was reportedly working out of a media building. they're also hitting more than a hu

then she will meet with palestinians in she will head to cairo and meet with leaders of egypt. >> the time now is 7:36. let's take a live look at the james lick in san francisco will be right back. welcome at the time is 7 :36. san jose is the fittest city in america. one of the reasons 84% of the reason in san jose exercised and one of the ways people are getting moving is the new exercise dance. >> what is going on behind me is not a flash mop it is a thing call you jam fitness developed here in san jose by suzy. susie this is your baby. >> it is about 1,000 cals are burned in every class. upper body lower body. a lot of unity and love and support for one another. >> it gets the full second of the doctors this afternoon at 3:00 right here on kron 4. >> a new study finds that kids who regularly attend day care or more likely to be overweight and those who stay at home with modern that. if our kids between the ages of 1 and 4 of kamel state with an extended family member or in day care, were more likely to become obese by the age of 10. researchers have not yet figured out the reason behin
egypt. and that's really the key. she'll go to cairo. egypt is playing the crucial role in this. that new government of mohamed morsi who himself is a member of the muslim brotherhood. there's a lot of sympathy in egypt for hamas. but on the other hand, egypt does want to play a constructive role because they know that they need the help of the united states, the help of the eu, the help of the international community for their economy. so it's a very delicate type of balance. hillary clinton knows the players. she's met several times with benjamin netanyahu. she's met with mahmud abbas, and she really knows the issues, so she's the perfect person to do it. >> jill, it is speculation, but it seems to me that the secretary of state would not be on her way to the middle east at this moment if a ground invasion were imminent. that is not a split-screen picture that the u.s. would like to see, no doubt. but as you said, a lot of what she'll be doing is working the allies. that's what the president's been doing, on the phone with turkey, egypt, countries in the region trying to stabi
there are cease-fire negotiations going on inside cairo and today the prime minister says the israeli army is ready for the escalation, the only thing that would mean a ground war and came at 24 hours notice to put a cease-fire deal on the table or tanks will be headed across these fields. >> dave: say staff, my friend. it's complicated by the fact that turkey, tunisia, u.s. allies, democratic governments appear early side hamas. >> ainsley: can't take living here in america for granted. can you imagine that, hearing the sirens and hunker down and find a rock. >> clayton: all tw take would be one rocket. and let's check the weather and rick reichmuth is looking at the forecast, headed into the big travel week. >> rick: everybody wants to know whether they can get home. what the weather looks like, look at the sunny icons there, that's good. temps not bad. plenty of sunshine, no big storms or wind that's going to impede air travel. across the west, a bit of a different story, and across area of the northwest and northern california where we'll see some rain and some showers, it's not going
